Always seems to be in a hurry. Misdiagnosed my problem and didn't offer apology or seem to care. Seems like a factory in there and you're just a number. I have since found a new physician and she is wonderful!

Quick but not personable in the slightest.

Went in for the boyfriend. Appointment at 10:30am. Was "done" by 11. Went in for a bump and a check up. He barely asked any questions, didn't seem concerned or interested really in finding out why he has pain in his arm. The "physical" was maybe 5 minutes long and no actual checks or anything. It just felt like he was trying to get done as fast as possible so he could go answer a phone call he had. I was not impressed. He wasn't personable at all. He didn't seem actually concerned with his NEW patient. And then when he was done he just left us in the room wondering if we were supposed to leave or wait for someone. It was awkward and I was unimpressed.
